In spite of the pivotal role FSH plays in the regulation of gametogenesis, we are far from understanding the regulatory mechanisms involved in the control of its synthesis, secretion, and functions. Part of the problem relates to its molecular heterogeneity and the unavailability of assay methods capable of distinguishing the various isoforms of FSH. Recent work has confirmed the existence of two modes of FSH secretion, the basal and the episodic modes. The major portion of FSH secretion… CONTINUE READING
